Corry, PA-based plastic injection molding company wins for 4th consecutive year
Corry, PA, May 29, 2018 – Viking Plastics, a leading injection molding and value-added assembly service provider and a Tier 1 supplier to General Motors, announced it has received the 2017 General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award for achieving the highest levels of performance in quality excellence. This is the fourth consecutive award earned by Viking Plastics.
The annual GM Supplier Quality Excellence Award is given to only a few, top performing suppliers that meet or exceed General Motors’ stringent quality performance criteria. GM’s culture of “putting the customer at the center of everything we do” depends in part on the quality of the parts it receives from partners such as Viking Plastics. In recognizing the Viking Plastics/GM partnership, GM’s award letter stated “through your plant’s performance you are helping to live that culture.”
“We are proud to accept this award from GM for the fourth consecutive year. General Motors continues to recognize Viking Plastics for the hard work and dedication to quality that is the hallmark of our company,” said Kelly Goodsel, president and CEO of Viking Plastics. “We support GM’s culture of putting the customer first, which is what we strive to do every day through our commitment to quality and daily continuous improvement.”
Every day, all of Viking Plastics’ 150+ employees are encouraged to take initiative to improve processes by eliminating waste and optimizing workflows, which enables Viking Plastics to deliver the high-quality products customers like General Motors demand.
